It is spring and everything is in bloom. The turtle family is embarking on a walk. A nice slow walk, a long slow walk, but that is how turtles travel. They travel all through the spring, through the day and night, and on into the hot summer. Are we there yet? No! They walk slowly on through summer and right into autumn. It takes a long time, but that is how turtles travel. And on they go, walking slowly, through autumn with all its beautiful colors and into winter. Are we there yet? Yes! Winter is just what the turtle family has been heading for, for a very special reason.
Matt Phelan is both author and illustrator of this absolutely enchanting picture book for the very youngest of listeners. The text is very sparse, but perfect for this sweet story. Little ones who don’t have much patience will see that being patient can have its rewards after hearing this story. The illustrations are delightful with lovely, soft colors representing all the seasons beautifully and leading to a fun surprise at the end. This is a book that will have children begging to have it read again and again.
